Interesting or amusing computer naming conventions

33 posts in this topic

Early on my wireless network was Umbrella Satelite Network, and my laptop was Red Queen... Unfortunetly, a bunch of heros came along and killed red queen... Thats what I get for naming it after a computer game that I've never actualy played.

Unfortunetly the computer died... later the warenty on the laptop expired, I was free to do my own work. Sabrina was born from the pieces. Named after sabrina the teenage witch, half because I always thought working on it was a witch, half because it was magical the ways a laptop could fail (Perticularly part of the old fan broke off once, found its way through the slots, and shot into my leg to draw blood...)

After that I reconfigured the SSID on the wifi with a new router (The old one tended to have fits) to Neutron Star, then Supernova, then finaly for several months black hole, sucking information and trapping it in a cirle around my house.

At one point on the old laptop (before it was red queen) I called the wifi card bob, then ted, then finaly D20 (I rolled to see if I could find wireless...)

I've thought of naming the printer EARS, but no one got the reference (First printer as far as I know) and I dont use it nearly enough.

My main systems go as

Main Server -- Big Bertha

Desktop -- Bertha

Laptop --Big L Bertha

EEE -- L Bertha

The L is for Laptop.

My other Names for my computers are just Random (HackItOrDie, ILoveToBeHack, What What) My Open networks (and they are open for a reason(I just feel sorry for the person who connects to them) (Free Porn, Internet Only, Free Net, Free Internet)

The naming convention for my main computers/Laptop all end in Bertha, because there are all a bitch when she stops working :D

My college has some interesting clusters. They try to theme each of them and I know of at least the junkfood (hoho and jolt are two from there) and spice girl (they only used four of them: scary, posh, baby, and sporty) clusters.

Personally, my computers at home are named by their purpose (NAS, SRV, WKS(workstation), WAP, LAP) and a number. Eventually, I may try to do something more interesting.
